Veggie Pizza Squares

I originally found this recipe in the Pampered Chef Classics cookbook.  I've made it many times, but have adapted it over to time to my tastes and also to make it a little simpler to make.  I use the Big & Flaky crescent rolls to give it more of a deep dish style.  So yummy!  I don't really measure out the veggies and cheese.  Use what works for you!  Enjoy!

 You will need to 2 8 oz. pkgs. of cream cheese, 2 containers of crescent rolls, 1 clove of garlic,  2 tsp. of dill weed, 1 T. mayonnaise, salt and pepper to taste, about 4 cups of chopped veggies and some cheddar cheese.  I like to use a bag of mixed veggies from the produce.  The mix I use contains broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots.  They are already chopped, but I do chop them a bit further as I like smaller pieces.  You will only use about half the bag. I also chop a bit of red pepper (about a 1/4 cup).

 Place crescent rolls in a prepared jelly roll pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes or golden brown.

 Allow crust to cool.

 Mix softened cream cheese, mayo, dill, minced garlic, and salt and pepper in medium bowl until well-blended.

 Spread mixture over cooled crust.

 Add broccoli and cauliflower.

 Sprinkle on a little diced red pepper.

 Add some sliced carrots.  I only sliced about 3-4 baby carrots.  It doesn't take much!

 I love how festive this looks!  Perfect for those holiday parties!!  Oh and don't forget to sprinkle on some cheddar cheese (see below)!

Refrigerate until ready serve!  Cut into squares!
